and when. kpix5's allen martin tells us the suspects started shopping months ago. >> on february 6, ten weeks before the marathon bombings, dzhokhar tsarnaev walked into the fire works store and bought two lock and load kits. contained 24 shells. investigators now are trying to determine if the brothers used the black powder from those fireworks as the explosive in the pressure cooker bombs. his name was recorded in the store's computer system at the time of the sale and megan was the clerk. >> i do remember just him asking, first him having the accent and asking for the stuff. i showed him one other product, but he stressed he wanted the biggest, loudest stuff. >> new pictures surfaced of the early morning shootout between the brothers and police in watertown, massachusetts. the photos taken from inside a
house overlooking the scene of the gunfight seemed to show the brothers crouched in front of a mercedes suv that they carjacked. one of the brothers appears to be holding a gun with both hands in front of his body. a second car belonging to the suspect can also be seen with a passenger door open. witnesses say during the shootout, the brother seemed to retrieve ammunition and explosives from that vehicle to use in the on going battle. tamerlan tsarnaev was killed in the confrontation, but his younger brother, survived and is in fair condition in a boston hospital with multiple gun shot wounds. he told investigators that he and his brother acted alone. and the fbi found no evidence of conspiracy. hi and his brother drew inspiration from radical islamic preachings on the internet. investigators believe they may have launched the attack in

senator, and a county judge. on tuesday, the justice department dropped the charges against him, saying quote, the investigation has revealed new information. >> when you have been charged with something and you just never heard of it, ricin or whatever. i said i don't eat rice. >> curtis' release comes as the fbi released the home. to search for evidence that could link him to the letters. after searching curtis' house, an fbi agent testified in court, investigators could not find ricin or any other evidence tieing curtis to the letters. curtis, says the fbi clearly got the wrong man. and he says he just wants to get back to his life. >> find out what normal is again. >> curtis' defense attorney says his man being investigated by the fbi knows curtis and holds a grudge against him. >> anything bad that happened in his life, he has somehow managed to believe that he is responsible for it. >> while agents searched the
second home, an fbi spokesman says the investigation into the ricin letters is quote, on going. cbs news. >> prosecutors say that charges against paul, kevin, curtis, could be reinstated. there may be a new lead for one of the bay area's most wanted men. investigators think 42-year-old storm picked up a woman yesterday. the woman noticed the driver had a knife, so she got out in palo alto and called police. when officers arrived, they found the car, but no sight of storm. he's accused in a string of break ins and car thefts stretching from sai sanoma to santa cruz. this is what shane would look like today at age 32. and this is what he looked like when he disappeared at age 22. he was last seen in the apartment complex in pleasantton hours before he was due in court for a dui charge.
